Many would say that you can’t truly appreciate the natural beauty of the autumn season without a trip to Europe and Germany is overloaded with stunning scenery. Head to the SouthWest of Bavaria where you will find the iconic Neuschwanstein Castle nestled on a cliff top position and shrouded in woodland. Rumour has it that this Castle was the inspiration for Disney’s own Cinderella’s Castle.
